The space

THE HOUSE: This riad from the 17th century was recently renovated with traditional Moroccan construction techniques. Examples of Moroccan handicraft, such as Tadelakt (Moroccan wall painting technique with colors), sculpted plaster and wooden ceilings are found in every room. Lamps, furniture, mirrors, bedspreads, curtains, etc. found in the riad have all been crafted by Moroccan artisans, some of them living next door.

PRIVACY: When you rent our riad you always book the entire house. There will be no other guests, just you and your family and friends.

RENT: The rental price includes the exclusive use of the entire house and cleaning upon your departure. We provide bed sheets, towels and usual amenities such as hairdryers. There is a French/English-speaking caretaker. She is available any time during your stay to assist you and make sure you are enjoying your vacation.

HOUSEKEEPER: A French and English-speaking housekeeper has a bedroom in the house. He has his own entrance to the house but he shares the staircase. He is available any time during your stay to assist you and make sure you are enjoying your vacation. A French-speaking cleaning-lady comes in regularly to clean the main areas and, if you wish, can also clean the bed rooms at no extra costs.

ROOMS: The total surface of the house is about 400m2 and it can accommodate up to 16 persons in 8 beds. The dining room, a large kitchen, a Moroccan chill out area (bouh) and two bedrooms are located on the ground floor. Two large suites of about 50m2 and a large bedroom are on the first floor, while an apartment with two bedrooms is located on the roof terrace. Each bedroom and suite has its own bathroom and is equipped with reversible air-conditioning.

BEDROOMS FIRST FLOOR:
Suite Safran: one double bed (160cm × 200cm)
Suite Cannelle: two double beds (160cm × 200cm and 140× 200cm)
Room Paprika: one double bed (160cm × 200cm)

BEDROOMS GROUND FLOOR:
Room Oranger: two single beds (90cm × 200cm) that can be merged to a double bed (180cm × 200cm)
Room Olivier: one double bed (160cm × 200cm)

BEDROOMS ROOF TERRACE:
Two bedrooms each with a double bed (160cm × 200cm and 160cm × 200cm). The two bedrooms of the roof terrace have only one bathroom with shower. The bathroom is not closed and the access is from one of the bedrooms. Ideally, the two bedrooms are occupied by persons who know each other well.

LIVING OUTDOOR: a large patio with two fountains and four orange trees occupies the ground floor. On the first floor, there is a chill out balcony with a view on the patio. On the top floor, the large roof terrace of about 200m2 is the best place to enjoy the sunshine during the day and the deliciously breezy evenings of Marrakesh. This is a place for relaxation and meditation, where you can watch dozens of storks nesting on the nearby walls of the «Palais Badii». All plants found on the terrace and in the patio are typical of Morocco. The house is the home of bougainvillea, hibiscus, cactuses, orange trees, laurels and palms trees.

ARRIVAL BY CAR: The house is located in the old town of Marrakesh and there is no direct access by car. After booking, I will send you information about a guarded parking nearby.

ARRIVAL BY PLANE/TRAIN/BUS: We can pick you up at the airport, the train station, or the bus station. A transfer costs 15€ for or up to 7 persons. Ask for the price if you are more than 7 persons.

INTERNET ACCESS: Free Internet access through a Wi-Fi connection is available.

BREAKFAST: We will be happy to serve you a delicious Moroccan breakfast for a small fee. Each breakfast (fresh orange juice, Moroccan crepes, fruits, omelets, bread, butter, jam, tea and coffee) costs 5€ per person and is served on the roof terrace or in the patio.

DINNER: For the first evening, we recommend you have dinner in the riad to spend a relaxing first evening in Marrakech before exploring the sometimes overwhelming Medina. A Moroccan dinner includes various Moroccan salads as a starter, a Tagine as the main dish, and a Moroccan dessert. The Tagine is made with beef, chicken, lam or vegetables only (you can pick one).

DAY TRIPS: We know many good drivers that can be rented for a day trip. Currently, the daily rental price for a car with driver is 130€. The car can fit up to 7 persons. Please ask us for a quote. Booking our transfer from the airport is a good way to get to know the driver and the vehicle in case you plan such a trip and want it to be arranged by us.

GUIDE: If you are interested, we can organize a guide who will help you discover the many cultural and historical aspects of Marrakech. A half-day tour costs 50€.

SMOKING: Smoking is allowed on the roof terrace and in the patio.

VISITORS: No local visitors are allowed entry to the Riad during your stay. This restriction is necessary because of the Moroccan legislation.

NEIGHBORS: It is expected that our guests do not make excessive noise that could disturb our neighbors. Furthermore, it is not allowed to be naked on the roof terrace. We also ask our guests not to unnecessarily look at the terraces and patios of the riads in the neighborhood. The roof terraces in Morocco were originally reserved for women.

Riad Lak Lak was a very good choice. There were 9 of us and we each had our own room (couples stayed together) and our own bathroom. Ahmed and Hada were excellent, from booking private taxis for our daily excursions to preparing our early morning breakfasts, always there when we needed them. The riad was always very clean and well taken care of. We were welcomed with traditional tea and biscuits with calming music playing (to which stereo we had access to throughout our stay). Breakfast mostly consisted of traditional bread and jams, pastries, pancakes, coffee, tea and fresh orange juice. There was also a Nespresso machine (bring your own capsules). The hosts also took care of our laundry and any other house work necessary. Roof terrace was the best part of the riad, with a nice breeze at night (cooler than the rest of the riad). Wifi on terrace unfortunately did not work but the downstairs wifi worked fine most of the time. Airport transport was arranged by Ahmed on our arrival and departure day. The riad was walking distance from the old town's markets where you could experience the real Marrakech. Also very close to a big square where we caught a concert on our first night there (could barely hear the music at the riad, even though we were very close to it). All in all, the hospitality at the riad was excellent, would highly recommend

Probably the most amazing Air B&B I have ever stayed in. We had what I can only describe as a palatial riad all to ourselves, my friend and I felt like royalty. The pictures can't even do it justice. Ahmed the housekeeper was so so sweet and helpful and accompanied us through the alleyways and to the main square every time we left Definitely get the breakfast, brillant for 5euros. The sun terrace is perfect for sunbathing. We felt so well looked after and also took up the recommended guide, who was great and super knowledgeable. We also used the drivers attached to the riad, who were much cheaper than the one time we got in a taxi and were charged double the price. Will definitely come back. AMAZING.

My friends and I had an amazing stay in Aleks' Riad. Aleks provided us with all the information we needed about our stay and arranged transfers for us from the airport. We had a great breakfast prepared for us each morning and a lovely meal on the first night we arrived. Ahmed was always around to answer any questions we had. The Riad is great and gives you a real Moroccan experience, also located very near to the square and local restaurants. Thanks for a great stay!

We had the most wonderful time at Riad LakLak. We celebrated my mums 60th with an age range of 3 to 88. We could not of felt more welcome. Stunning rooms and a beautiful roof terrace. The food in Marrakesh is wonderful and some of the best meals we had were cooked for us at the Riad. I would highly recommend dinner and definitely breakfast every morning!

What a fantastic holiday! Aleks and his team made all 20 of us so welcome at 2 of his riads for my 30th Birthday. Ahmed and Amal could not do enough for us, and the food Fatima cooked for us on our first night was absolutely gorgeous. Probably the best meal we had during our stay! The riad itself was stunning, and far exceeded our expectations. Everyone was well catered for, the bedrooms were extremely comfortable and it is in a fantastic position to explore the souks and then retreat for a little privacy. We will definitely be booking again for our next trip. Thank you so much for making it such a memorable holiday for all of us. Elena

What an amazing place. We have stayed in a lot of airbnb places and this really does rank among the best. The riad is beautiful but it was the staff who really made our trip fantastic. We celebrated my mums 70th and they put on the most lovely meal with cake, candles and balloons. Be sure to book this riad.

We had a fantastic stay at Riad LakLak. The communication prior to arriving was spot on. Ahmed was brilliant and arranged our breakfast, taxi's and excursions. The riad is more spacious than the pictures suggest with huge bedrooms and has been beautifully restored by Aleks. The terrace at the top is magnificent. It is also conveniently positioned for the souks and restaurants.

I have been in love with Marrakech, its inhabitants and Moroccan artwork for many years. The first time I was struck by the beauty of Morocco was when, after hitchhiking from Switzerland, I arrived in Tangier in 1979.
I offer for rent Swiss owned private vacation houses in the heart of the Medina of Marrakesh. With me, you always book the entire house. There will be no other guests, just your family and friends!

Ich vermiete Ferienhäuser in der Medina (Altstadt) von Marrakesch. Wenn Sie ein Riad über mich mieten, mieten Sie immer das ganze Haus. Es gibt keine anderen Gäste ausser Ihre Familie und Ihre Freunde! Alle Riads sind im Besitz von Schweizer Privatpersonen und wurden sorgfälltig mit traditionellen Methoden renoviert und sind mit modernstem Komfort ausgestattet.
